Gopal Krishna 9"
The central figure of Bhagavad-Gita-renowned as a lover
This sculpture shows the playful nature of Krishna and his zest for life and all its pleasures. Krishna is one of the most popular Hindu gods. He stands in a relaxed position with one leg over the other playing the flute. Krishna's flute playing would beguile the cow herder's daughters who were all in love with Krishna. Krishna is a hero and central figure of Bhagavad-Gita. He loved life and lived his time on this earth to the fullest. This Krishna is a hand made, one of a kind, bronze sculpture cast by the artists of South India using the lost wax process, a skill passed on for generations since the Chola period. Krishna is covered in finely carved jewelry and clothes.
